Lebanon cabinet sets 'final session' on Friday for 2020 draft budget: minister

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Lebanese cabinet will hold a “final session” on Friday on the 2020 draft budget, Telecoms Minister Mohamed Choucair said on Thursday.

Lebanon is under pressure to approve the 2020 budget to unlock some $11 billion pledged at a donor conference last year, funds badly needed to boost the country’s indebted economy.
